Top Plays

Bo Nix $10,100
Sam Hartman $9,700
JJ McCarthy $9,400
Dillon Gabriel $9,100
Tanner Mordecai $8,900
Joe Milton $8,700

• All of these QBs have matchups I love and opportunities to score you 30+ points. Gabriel is an excellent value at $9,100 and I expect him to torch the Red Wolves defense. Joe Milton will look to make an impression vs UVA and get the Vols offense going. Nix and Hartman have matchups vs FCS teams so they could have big first halves and be done for the game. 

Best Value Plays

Michael Penix Jr $8,400
Devin Leary $8,100
Quinn Ewers $7,700
Emmett Morehead $7,600
Shedeur Sanders $7,000
Chandler Morris $6,900
Taylen Green $6,800

• I believe Colorado loses vs TCU but Shedeur Sanders will most likely be passing a lot. I believe he could have a big game and Colorado still loses by 21. I also believe a lot of people will play Shedeur Sanders which makes Chandler Morris an excellent contrarian play. Emmett Morehead will also be a good low owned contrarian play and he has some good weapons at Boston College to throw to. Penix at 8.4K is excellent value for a QB who’s capable of scoring 30+ fantasy points with ease. 

Longshot Play

Cade McNamara $6,600

• McNamara transfers in from Michigan and everyone knows about Iowa having to score a certain amount of points this season. I don’t expect McNamara to be highly owned and he’s capable of 250 yards 2 TDs in my opinion. 


Top Plays

TreVeyon Henderson $7,800
Audric Estime $7,200
Ray Davis $7,100

• If Henderson is 100% back and healthy he’s capable of a huge game vs Indiana, however I worry that Miyan Williams could also get a ton of carries. Estime has an easy matchup which could lead to 2 TDs early then a seat on the bench in the second half or 4th quarter. Ray Davis might be my favorite of these four plays. The UK RB comes in from Vanderbilt and he has a matchup and price tag I like. 

Best Value

Blake Corum $6,900
Braelon Allen $6,700
Quinshon Judkins $6,600
Miyan Williams $6,500
Donovan Edwards $6,200
Bucky Irving $6,100
Pat Garwo III $6,000
Jabari Small $5,800
Kaleb Johnson $5,700
Jonathon Brooks $5,300
Dillon Johnson $5,200

• This is a LOADED list of Value Plays. Some of the best RBs in College Football are at the top of this list. Corum and Edwards have a matchup vs ECU which I expect both to get you 15+ points. Allen at 6.7K is a steal and a great play. Someone should call 911 for Quinshon Judkins being just $6,600 with a matchup vs Mercer. Some low owned contrarian plays I love of this bunch are Garwo, Small and the Johnsons. Kaleb Johnson should do well for Iowa in a matchup vs Utah State. Dillon Johnson will start for Washington and being in a high powered offense I could see him getting 2 scores. 

Longshot Play

Ashton Jeanty $4,200

• Jeanty averaged 11.3 FPPG last season and the Boise State RB is an excellent play if you’re looking to save money for higher priced QBs or WRs.


Top Plays

Marvin Harrison Jr $9,100
Troy Franklin $7,700
Jalil Farooq $7,500
Emeka Egbuka $7,400
Rome Odunze $7,300

• You have to pay up to get Harrison Jr and it will pay off for you to do so. His price tag could get some ownership off of him but he will have an opportunity for 100+ yards 2 TDs. If Dillon Gabriel has a big game I believe Farooq could be the beneficiary. Odunze at 7.3K is a steal, he’s one of the top WRs in all of CFB and Penix will look his way often.

Best Value Plays

JoJo Earle $6,900
Jalen McMillan $6,900
Xavier Worthy $6,600
Ryan O’Keefe $6,100
Julian Fleming $5,900
Xavier Weaver $5,600
Squirrel White $5,500
AD Mitchell $5,500
Chimere Dike $5,400
Joseph Griffin Jr $5,300

• You can’t go wrong with McMillan or Worthy, two experienced players for a great price. JoJo Earle is a contrarian play because people will pay up for Rome Odunze or drop down to McMillan or Worthy. Earle could be in line for a big day and I’d stack him with Chandler Morris. Ryan O’Keefe and Joseph Griffin Jr are two players who will be low owned and I’d stack one with Emmett Morehead if you play him. Like I said earlier, Colorado will most likely be losing and having to pass which is why I believe Shedeur Sanders is a good play, this is also why I like Xavier Weaver his WR. Chimere Dike has never been a WR CFF players think of as elite but in a Phil Longo offense he could be elite this fall.

Longshot Plays

Bru McCoy $4,800
Trayvon Rudolph $4,600
Kaleb Brown $4,500
Luke Lachey $3,800
Ja’Tavion Sanders $3,700

• Ja’Tavion Sanders will be one of the best Tight Ends in CFB this season so 3.7K is a MASSIVE steal. Iowa has a viable QB this season so Lachey and Brown will get plenty of looks. Lachey is an outstanding TE and another steal for 3.8K.
